Reason #5 – You Have a Unwavering Right to Freshness.
That’s right. This is America and you are entitled to so many things, chief amongst them is the right to freshness. If you want some perfume or cologne, you go out and buy it. If you don’t have any money (or maybe you have money and just don’t want to spend it), you steal it. If you’re a store that sells what I need to stay fresh, I can’t steal from you if your protect fragrance with some sort of security non-sense. You wouldn’t stifle my right to free speech, so don’t try to limit my ability to steal some cologne with your Alpha Keeper madness!
Reason #4 – You Owe Your Employees a Freebie Once in a While.
A paycheck and steady income is not enough these days. Your employees have a right to steal from you, whether you like it or not. You can’t possibly think you can limit their financial gains, can you? One of the best gifts you can get yourself is some cologne or perfume. As a retailer, you need to allow your employees to just take whatever they want, whenever they want it. Don’t you even think about using alpha keepers for those pricey bottles of smell good solution? That would just stop your employees from stealing it! What’s even worse is if they can’t steal it from you, they just might quit and go to another company where it’s easier to steal!
Reason #3 – Can You Really Trust Something That Can be Reused?
Look, there really has to be a “one and done” mentality when it comes to ways to protect fragrance. I don’t know about you, but I don’t trust anything that doesn’t break the first time I use it. Are Alpha Keepers made of some sort of governmentally created super plastic? Do you really want something that durable and long-lasting in your store? Who knows what’s really inside. I’d much rather just place my stock of cologne and perfume on the shelf and rely solely on the honor system than to use an Alpha Keeper that’s going to give me a return on investment.
Reason #2 – You Actually Want a Small Percentage of Criminals in Your Store for Street Credit.
Everyone knows that if you want higher foot traffic, you have to get celebrities, professional athletes and other infamous figures to get caught shop(lifting) in your store. Just think about what Winona did for 5th Avenue stock! Wouldn’t you want that kind of exposure in your store? Wouldn’t it be great for sales if Christina came in one day and just boosted the mess out of her perfume line? You’re not going to get the attention you deserve if you do something crazy like protect fragrance with some simple security measure.
Reason #1 – It’s Too Hard and Time Consuming to Use Simple Plastic Boxes
Seriously though. What do you really expect out of your team? Can you really expect them to go through the arduous task of opening an Alpha Keeper, placing the fragrance in the box and then putting it all the way back on the shelf every single time? That’s like three whole steps that will probably take AT LEAST 15 seconds. People have lives and can’t be bothered with such routine tasks in the work place, no matter how much money it could save you. Your employees have better things to do, like check their social media accounts and hold long personal conversations with other employees. I mean it is your fault anyway if fragrances are stolen; you’re the one that made the decision to carry a high theft item, not them, right?
